The Simple Life. This is a CD about why I moved to Iowa, the things that somehow manage to keep me sane, the things I struggle with and the hardships we all endure. Sometimes the Simple Life is something we're living, and sometimes it's something we have a deep longing for. Over the past few years a lot has happened - my father passed away in 2017, my mental health hit some new, previously unknown lows, I fell in and out of love and all the while I continued my ongoing search for meaning and happiness.
These songs are the result of all that, and they are some of the most honest, raw and poignant things I've ever written down. There's also joy in there, don't worry - for me it's often the simple things that realign me with my own sense of happiness, whether it's seeing a possum in the driveway, hearing the first birds of spring or opening my window for the first time in months and feeling a fresh breeze blow in.
So in some ways this is a simpler CD, which is fitting - simpler in that it's based around live takes with guitar and voice, and everything else falls into place around that. I really wanted to make something that people can take home after a show and say, that sounds like what I just heard, with the picture just filled in a tiny bit more.
I appreciate your support so, so much and really look forward to sharing this music with you. Many thanks for your love and generosity.
